Ben's General Food Store, Publika

Last weekend was pretty hectic for us because there was a wedding and a lot of catching up with friends. And on Sunday, we've decided to take things slow and chill. I had to go to Publika for an eye check-up and for new prescriptions of contact lenses. Yes, I am pretty blind.

After my check-up, we wander around B.I.G (Ben's Independent Grocer) because we wanted to buy some chocolates from Royce. Been craving for the good ol' Japanese chocolates.

After that, we started looking for a place for dinner. And we're curious with one particular place that is located within B.I.G and that's Ben's General Food Store. I've seen it at Bangsar Village but never ventured in to give it a try (don't know why...) This time around though, in Publika we gave it a shot and no regrets.

I was too lazy to stand up and get a closer shot.

The condiments and cutleries on display at each table. 

 The simple menu.

Seating arrangements.

Jacket potato served with chives, bacon bits and sour cream. I request for no sour cream coz I prefer my food without additional sauce. I love this and when I do crave for potatoes (which is often) I know where to go.

Salami Pizza - tomatoes, mozzarella  and beef pepperoni salami. Yum yum. This comes in one standard size with cutout of 8 slices of pizza. Simple dish and straight to the point.

Beef Pie - I love the pastry because of its buttery goodness. I love its pungent crust and richness. You may choose the type of salad as a side dish. We chose Caesar Salad coz it's safe. And the beef is tender and it literally melt in your mouth. The gravy was a tad salty and it is advisable to eat with the pastry to balance it off.

We both want to come back the following weekend to taste the rest of the menu. Hopefully, it will be kind to our waistline.

  2. Hi!

    Just wondering how can I get to Publika via public transport? I'm a tourist from SG and will be traveling to KL alone!

    1. Hi Frey! Your best bet is to take a cab there. It's quite new and I'm not sure whether there's any bus service.
